Of particular interest among the several dozen objects discovered in 2009 in Ostrów Lednicki (including 15 coins mainly from the end of the 11th c.) was an ornamental brass fitting of the handle of a nahajka, which is the Polish name for a plaited leather whip. The find, which is linked to the culture of nomadic peoples, is unique in Poland. It is impossible to say when the whip (fitting) reached Ostrów Lednicki or who had lost it there, but it is most likely that the event occurred sometime at the end of the 11th and the beginning of the 12th c.
